Niece, why is working under 4 hrs a day not advised? I work only 2hrs a day! That’s all they offered me, even though my Dr said I could work up to 4 hrs a day!

Nicole - OWCP won't pay for the absence unless you have medical documentation explaining why you needed time off. If you're still having trouble working a full week, it would be wise to ask your doctor to also write a letter limiting you to only work 6 hours/day or however many hours you can work. Just so you know, working under 4 hours/day isn't advised [can cause postal problems].

And, yes, the absence you took would be considered an unscheduled absence. You need to ask your doctor for medical documentation explaining you will be needing to take intermittent days off due to your permanent back issue. This way you can apply for FMLA and then your absences will be protected.

I had an on the job injury May 2017 and was off work until Feb. 2018, I was given a permanent partial impairment for my back. My workmans comp claim is still active and since going back to work I had called into work under owcp, my question is can it be counted as an occurance since its covered under owcp? I had to wait almost a month to get back into the doc for him to fix my permanent work restrictions, I was having a lot of trouble making it a full week.

NRP- do I have to be represented by lawyer@ 30%?
If IRS a class action and I'm a member will I collect as an individual? Or is it an advantage to be represented by the lawyer?

Yes, I am asking about a schedule award for the carpal tunnel. I did go back to work 9 months after carpal tunnel surgery.

Five years later I got a severe shoulder injury and currently still out of work.

Wondering. Your question is unclear. It sounds like you're back to work with restrictions and have reached mmi? Are you asking about a schedule award for the carpal tunnel? Are you currently working 8 hours a day?
